      Fair enough.....As you know not everything can be valued solely in economic, mercantile terms, the players financials are of no interest to me...after all an extremely wealthy American Sports franchise pays all the players, not me or you. Everyone is of course free to pass judgement as to his LFC contribution....but I regard comments like Good riddance infantile and mean spirited, and so call them out....(admittedly not from You.)
      His Liverpool contribution has been a 3/10 at best. Hope that clears that up for you... XxXX

      Childish comment.....He was a great asset who has had some serious bad luck with injuries.

      So me saying adios amigo I won't miss you is somehow deemed childish?

      He can go be someone else's problem for a change, we've paid him 10million the last 12 months to play 5 mins of football. That's stealing a living where I'm from.

      He has something like 286 senior appearances since 2009. That's about 5 seasons worth of appearances in a 15 year career...
      Still, we'll all remember his 60 odd forward passes and two goals for Liverpool with great fondness...

      Adiós is right  :lmao:

      The club didn’t get “zero return” from any of the players

      And they didn’t refuse to Gini a new deal - he wanted a deal that put him at the top of tree at the club

      Again can you tell us which clubs were looking to spend money on the players
      lets get one thing straight,it wasnt intentional by fsg ,their tight as  wet knot,thats why bellinghams at madrid🤣🤣

      'issues with injuries"  :lmao: :lmao: :lmao:

      Give him a 2 year contract extension then. I'm sure he'll come good (sometime)...

      Until the middle of last season when he got the hoop injury he played 100 games in 2.5 seasons and was a key player when we went for the quad

      The hip injury last year was clearly very serious

      What was it you expected the club to do

      You didn't say Adios Amigo, that would be courteous and mannered...you said "Good riddance" that IMO is infantile, mean spirited and childish.  BTW when you say "We've " paid him, that doesn't include you....you haven't paid him a penny....Oh and if you suspect there's been a theft, perhaps you should call the police and report it, as is your civic duty.

      Or maybe they were CL matches as well as League and FA Cup matches - but don’t let facts get in the way of anything

      Great player when healthy. For most of his career he hasn't been healthy. Sad story really.

      We all hoped for better but injuries cost us seeing anything consistently.

      Having said that, when he was up and running, I honestly can't remember more then a couple of times, when he played that sweet pass thru or that pin point pass that split a defense open or being able to drop a ball on a dime.

      I was hoping for a lot more of it but again injuries, then coming back from injuries and trying to regain form, then getting re-injured, sure hasn't helped.

      Good Luck in the future Thiago.

      Sad to say apart from the goal v Porto he hasn't been that great, maybe for Bayern. Generally been a walking injury for most of his time here. His injuries this season have taken the piss to be honest.

      !!! WARNING !!! it's my rudderless rant so people better skip it  haha

      Think about him, I'm hurt. Of course not his fault but our club should do better of this kind of players, VERY injury prone players. These hurt us a lot recently.

      Imagine with better management of Thiago situation (as I tend to think if Edward do not leave, Thiago likely now swimming in the pool full of money in the Saudi already) we are likely to have a much different end of this season.

      Imagine a bit further, put the average player such as James Ward-Prowse in Thiago slot in our squad.

      Sometimes people like the easy way to think about things and just say "unfortunately" or "bad luck". No in case like Thiago with us it's not bad luck it's bad management.

      Again I know well this kind of thinking or talking is absolutely useless, but watching our team collapse at very late of this season after very well over-perform by players and Klopp really caused a lot of hurt.

      Finally as now he leaving so wishes you all the best for your future Thiago.

      I’m going to suggest that a bid wasn’t put in because the player agent/team told us that he was only interested in going to Madrid

      BVB laid out the terms to any suited buyer before any offer was made from anyone so we knew it'd be rejected instantly so we didn't wanna embarrass ourselves lowballing about.
